Academics

The Master of Engineering degree is a coursework and project-oriented program.

    Curriculum Structure

    It requires thirty (30) credit hours consisting of coursework in major and supporting areas, and a project. This generally corresponds to 9 regular courses. Attendance at an additional one-credit, project management seminar and one-credit professional and leadership development series is also required, for a total of 32 credits minimum to graduate.

    The Master of Engineering degree can be completed in two semesters of intensive study, or in three semesters for students who want to include an internship, extra electives, or need time to adjust to study that departs significantly from their undergraduate experience.
